Trains are used to transport thousands of tons of iron ore through remote parts of Western Australia More
The train began its getaway when the driver stepped off to inspect a wagon.
A train with no-one on board travelled at 100km/h for 92km in a remote area of Australia before being deliberately derailed.
The driver had stopped at Hesta Siding to check a wagon, but the train - en route from Newman to Port Hedland - took off without him and careered 92 kilometres down the track before being derailed at Turner Siding.
During an investor meeting on Thursday, BHP was asked about the impact of the deliberate derailment of a train loaded with iron ore in the Pilbara region, 120 kilometres south of Port Hedland, which also severed the crucial rail link between its mines and shipping hub.
BHP Billiton said it had suspended all its iron ore rail operations in Western Australia on Monday after the incident.
An investigation into the incident is being carried out.
BHP's shares were trading 1.21 percent lower at AUD 33.14 in Sydney Wednesday amid reports in Britain that the Anglo-Australian firm was facing a GBP 5 billion (USD 6.5 billion) lawsuit over the deadly Samarco dam failure in Brazil in 2015.
Nineteen people were killed and a wave of toxic waste was unleashed when a dam burst at the mine in one of Brazil's worst environmental disasters.

Rizzo: Nats made offer to Bryce Harper late in season
Importantly for any future negotiations, Harper's deal would not be the largest in baseball history by average annual value. The 26-year-old superstar can field offers from other teams before deciding where he wants to play next season.

She'll be joined by Michigan Democrat Rashida Tlaib - also a Muslim and the first Palestinian-American to serve Congress. Another important trend from this year's exits (and any year's) is how gender interacts with race and education.
